Norman is claiming that the only reason someone might think never really existed is because he “hates Jesus.”

     Well, Norman says a lot of things.  But, in reality, the only “evidence” we have for his existence is the writings of the early christians, who had a motive to lie about it.  He may or may not have existed.  I don’t know.  The early christians could have taken a real person and made him out to be larger than life, or they could have invented someone out of whole cloth.  It is reasonable to take either position — or no position, for that matter.

     But Norman says it has to be hate.  But, seriously, how is that sensible.  If I think Apollo never existed, does that mean that I really believe but “hate” him?  There are plenty of writings about him as well.  Maybe, according to Norman, it means that I “hate music.”  Actually, knowing him, he’d probably make that accusation.  How about if I question the account of Romulus and Remus who were supposedly raised by a wolf?  Must that also be out of “hate”?
